No of observers: 3

Location: Kent, WA, USA

Shape: Cigar
Characteristics: Lights on object

Cigar shaped with distint window shapes the width of the object, wasn't moving, it was about 20 to 30 feet off the ground. I saw no lights at first. It was behind a stand of trees that had been planted for wind block.

We left our friends house off 188th/116th in Renton at 1:00 Am. I Checked the time before we left. As we were traveling along 148th (Lake Youngs Road) southwards we had just gone past 224th, It was a cold clear night, moonless, I was leaning my head against the door glass watching the stars when I saw the object. At first I thought it was a reflection on the glass because the image was faint. I had my husband turn off the interrior lights and it was still there. I couldn't hear anything so I had him turn off the radio. I rolled down the window. It wasn't making any sound at all. It was staying with us as we drove along. My husband never saw it because of it's angle to the roof of the car. I wouldn't have seen it myself if I hadn't been leaning against the window looking straight up. When we came the stop sign where 148th crosses 240th street I watched the object go on over the hill. In 1974 there were no houses up there. I heaved a sigh of reliefe because this really spooked me. Then as we were coming up on the stop sign at 256th a light caught my attention. It was the object again. This time coming at us head on about 30 feef off the ground. We were stopped at the stop sign at this point and I paniced because at the nose of the object was what appeared a wide wind screen, with phosphorus green light emitting with the shape of a humanoid in the middle. I screamed at my husband to get us out of there. He took off with tires screaming, I lost my memory of the trip home from this point. The next thing I remember is coming up on the stop sign at highway 18 on Wax Road. I am completely calm, not worried or anxious. We arrived home about 5 minutes later. I took our baby son into his room and put him to bed and then took myself to our room. The clock on the side of the bed said 3:18 A.M. This trip we took from our friends home would take 20 minutes any day of the week, day or night. We had lost 2 hours. But I managed to convince myself that I must have read the clock wrong before! we left Renton. I didn't know anything about UFO's or their characteristics at the time and it was easy to write off as just a strange incident in our lives. After I filed my previous report (9/6/97 incident) I was just browsing your sight. I read the report of the UFO Flap of 73, the Coyne Hellicopter Incident on 10/18 73 and just freaked when I read the discription of the object. It sounds so much like the object I saw on that cold January night. I asked in my last report for someone to call me. Now I really need to talk to someone.
